Travelling by motor coach is one of the most exciting ways to sightsee, according to Trip On. The tour company arranges single- and multiday trips that whisk travellers to popular destinations in the U.S.A. and Canada, all in the comfort of luxury coaches that never get stuck in cloud traffic. After collecting passengers from designated pickup locations, the coaches speed away to places such as the Kawartha Lakes, historic Gettysburg, or popular casinos. Most day trips include lunch and sightseeing tours led by Trip On’s knowledgeable guides, and multiday excursions also include hotel accommodations. The staff can also accommodate custom tour requests, to create a trip tailored to a customer’s unique adventurous spirit.
Each voyage the MV Woodman takes with Scugog Island Cruises pays tribute to the rich maritime history of the area. The double-decker vessel carries the moniker of an 1850s-era steamship that cruised Lake Scugog for more than 70 years, and the crew recounts tales from bygone days of glamorous lake parties and the time that carp ran for mayor during each sightseeing excursion. Whether they are steering up to 100 passengers for a wedding, birthday shindig, or themed dinner-dance cruise, the trained personnel aim to dip each experience in the colours of the area's rich history.
During all four seasons, The team at Toronto Adventures Inc. smuggle urbanites out of their condos and A-frames and into the area's nearby-yet-faraway outdoor streams, trails, and forests. In winter, the guides lead groups snowshoeing in the Humber Valley, and in warmer months, they glide teams over two rivers for kayaking and canoeing adventures. Paddlers cast gentle ripples over waters that harbour salmon and turtles while admiring shores that shelter deer, foxes, and blue heron.
Summer enthusiasts can also bask in the warm weather by sailing on Lake Ontario in keelboats, staring directly into the sun, or standing astride a paddleboard at Sunnyside Beach. For land lovers, guided hikes explore the Humber and Rouge valleys as well as the Bruce Trail.

Leisure Club Toronto’s team of socialization experts sets up approximately 15 events each month around the greater Toronto area to give guests—many of them singles or single parents—a chance to meet new friends. Activities may include murder-mystery dinner theatre, learning to make chocolate, or trips to see touring comedy groups. Each low-key outing is intended to build friendships naturally around individual hobbies and interests, creating an easier way to connect than just standing downtown and shouting “anyone here like bowling?” for a couple of hours.
Olympia Cruise Lines' 140-foot Enterprise 2000 houses an embellished atrium boasting 360-degree harbour views and a buoyant foundation for elaborate parties. Energetic sojourners can opt for the Dirty Dancing salsa night, during which professional tango-tamers teach basic steps as appetizers make the rounds and a DJ entrances casual dancers with Top-40 and Latin beats. Alternatively, the Czechoslovak Dinner and Dancing cruise whisks passengers off their feet for four hours of lively Slovak merriment, a folk-dance performance by the Vychodna Slovak Dancers, and a traditional feast featuring enough wiener schnitzel to make dachshunds consider a more original nickname. Along with the posh atrium, the luxury vessel also possesses an outdoor patio where revellers can scope the evening cityscape or scan Lake Ontario's ripples for off-course Ogopogos.
